Most Maine residents can use their local library card to borrow most materials at Fogler Library. Speak with Circulation staff, purchase may be unnecessary given we accept cards from most libraries in Maine.

Policy

  • No card listed on this page provides remote access to UMaine licensed indexes, journals, and databases. Vendor agreements limit use of these resources to UMaine students, faculty, and staff. All others may access most of these resources from inside of Fogler Library.
  • Cardholder is responsible for all materials borrowed with card.
  • Card is non-transferable and required for all transactions.
  • Use of audio/video equipment limited to University of Maine System students, faculty, and staff.
  • No pick-up of materials at University of Maine System Centers and Sites.
  • View your library account to verify due dates.
  • Public library patrons—Fogler Library is unable to process transactions if your record is expired or blocked. Please verify your record is in working order before attempting to borrow items here.
